Disaster Response from Alabama Tornado

     South Central Conference Adventist Community Services Disaster Response (ACS DR) team is on the ground working the aftermath of the December 25th tornado that hit the southwest area of Birmingham in Jefferson County, AL. The team is being led by Veronica Edwards-Johnson who is the Central AL ACS DR Coordinator. The team is working from the Volunteer Reception Center that is set up at Hopewell Baptist Church, Birmingham. They have been distributing clean-up buckets, hygiene kits, food and water. They have also been in the community providing these services as well.
     "The North Mississippi ACS DR Coordinator, Barbara Ware has been in discussions with local EMA officials in several counties and was told local churches were handling distributions. I've encouraged her to rally her team members an work alongside these different congregations to help provide assistance where needed. We covet your prayers and know that you are praying for us daily." - Barbara Barnes & Lillie Buckingham - Adventist Community Services/SCC
